Links with the local community
Being at the heart of the communities of Twyford, Ruscombe and Hurst is important to us as a church.
We work closely together with the local schools, for example running assemblies and prayer journeys:
- Polehampton C of E Infant School
- Polehampton C of E Junior School
- The Colleton School
- St Nicholas C of E Primary School
- The Piggott School
We also organise events for the community ourselves from time to time (see the Community Events page).
In these we sometimes join together with our friends from St Thomas More, the Roman Catholic church in Twyford.
All our churches support local foodbanks, a practical way to show God's love to people in need. At St Mary's, we collect donations for Readifood in Reading. Donations at St Nicholas go to the Wokingham foodbank.
